Hi *smiles*. I was told to read Step One over and over again for a couple weeks. I did. Then I was to read through the first chapter of the green and gold workbook and highlight questions and sentences that I felt really applied to me or moved me in some way. Then I was instructed to get out my journal, write down everything I highlighted, why I highlighted it or answer the question. I ended up with about 50 journal pages; quite a lot of writing! But I found it very cleansing, and it also brought up stuff from my past that I had pushed so far back in my head I had forgotten about it. Now I need to get together with my sponsor and go over it all with her.

I'm sure other sponsors do it differently, too. Good luck!
